Iran launches commercial production of black caviar

The Iranian province of Kermanshah has launched production of black caviar. The head of the fisheries and aquaculture organization “Shilat”, Kyumars Shahbazi, said that in the next 4-5 years the province will become a center for sturgeon production.

K.Shahbazi noted that with the reduction of production of caviar in the Caspian Sea, sturgeon farming has spread inland in the country. Currently, the province of Kermanshah has five sturgeon farms, Iran News reports.

Various researches show that Kermanshah province has most favorable conditions for breeding sturgeon.
